Starting today, you can add some flair to your too-sleek-for-school iPad2. Lauded local artist Rex Ray, known for his vividly colored artwork of abstract shapes, has collaborated with SF’s own DODOcase, and the two have just launched a signature series of exclusive designs to jazz up your tablet in a retro-modern fashion.
The Rex Ray iPad2 DODOcase retails for $89.95, but we’re offering one lucky reader the chance to win a signed original. Be the first person to email firstname.lastname@example.org what Rex cites below as one of his favorite projects, and the tablet cover is yours.
Did you know that for $50, you can turn your iPhone into a mobile microscope with 60x zoom and LED light display?
Or that a bug in Apple's FaceTime video chat feature suggests that it can take and store pictures without you even knowing it?
The place to find stories like these is San Francisco's Ubergizmo, where geeks explain technology in language that non-geeks can easily understand.
The perfect antidote to the gibberish typically found in user manuals.
Ubergizmo was was co-founded by designer Eliane Fiolet and software engineer Hubert Nguyen, both native French speakers, as a small blog in September 2004.
"We never thought it would be successful," says Fiolet. "Back then we both had day jobs."
